PIO is a genuine slow growth breed, unlike those sold as “slow growth”, which are industrial chickens that are simply older when they are slaughtered.
GETTING THE MOST FROM NUTRIENTS
Each of our animals grows at their own pace, using the nutrients they are given and turning them into meat, not fat.
We prepare the feed eaten by our PIO chickens in-house at our AVIGAL plant.
The animals are fed only plant-based feeds, enriched with vitamins and minerals and with a minimum cereal content of 65%, particularly corn.
Our PIO chickens are raised for at least 56 days, at the best Galician farms.
With a stocking density that does not exceed 14 birds per m2, each chicken is raised in a comfortable environment, with controlled humidity, temperature, light, CO2 and ammonia.
